Inaugural Light Fund social walk confirmed

Industry charity The Light Fund will be hosting a ‘meet and greet’ social walk in London on Friday 26 August.

The idea behind the walk is to create an opportunity for licensing friends and colleagues to meet up, chat and walk together.

The walk will be led by Light Fund trustee Ian Downes. It will start at Vauxhall station at 10.30am (meeting outside main entrance) and, depending on numbers, will be a guided walk along the River Thames ending up in Rotherhithe for a light lunch and drinks.

There is no charge for the walk and it is hoped that this will be the first of a series of social walks.

“The idea is to create an opportunity for licensing people to meet up in a relaxed way and to take a gentle walk together,” explained Ian. “Hopefully there will be a few interesting sights to take in along the way and some London history shared. It is very informal, but we hope it will appeal to the licensing industry, particularly those who work at home or in small teams.”

People interested in joining the walk should email Ian.

Participants will be responsible for their own lunch and drinks. The walk will be on pavements and along the Thames Path, so good walking shoes are recommended plus ‘on the go’ refreshments such as water. The walk is likely to take around two and a half hours, with a few stops along the way.
